We are a group of athletes from Northern California and Northern Nevada that love bicycle racing and strive to promote camaraderie and good sportsmanship in our sport. Team Clover was started with a discussion between two friends talking in a back yard over a bottle of wine wanting to put together a quality team with quality riders. We race for many reasons together, we race for ourselves, our teammates, and we race to support a cause. We have adopted the saying "Never Give Up" which is one of the ALS Association mottos. We ride in memory of one of our founders and friends John Ramatici who lost his fight with ALS in 2007. Every year we help promote The John Ramatici Memorial CLO-Terium (Also known as the Team Clover Corporate Criterium) where part of the proceeds are donated to the local ALS organization. We also commit yearly to riding The Ride to Defeat ALS to support a great organization and help raise money to find a cure soon.
